Population and biomass of United States sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus) from an Atlantic Sea Scallop Integrated Assessment Model (NCEI Accession 0171620)

This archival package includes the model output results published in Cooley et al. (2015), which described an integrated assessment model (IAM) that numerically simulates oceanographic, population dynamic, and socioeconomic relationships for the U.S. commercial sea scallop fishery. Ocean acidification, the progressive change in ocean chemistry caused by uptake of atmospheric CO2, is likely to affect some marine resources negatively, including shellfish. The Atlantic sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus) supports one of the most economically important single-species commercial fisheries in the United States. Careful management appears to be the most powerful short-term factor affecting scallop populations, but in the coming decades scallops will be increasingly influenced by global environmental changes such as ocean warming and ocean acidification. This analysis drew heavily on publicly available datasets of which some is reported in Cooley at al. (2015). We did not include the publicly available data in this dataset.
